We are having safety concerns during morning drop off. If you are dropping your students off please be sure that you are following the posted directions. One lane is for through traffic only, the other is for stopping to drop your student off. If you are in the lane to drop students off please be sure to pull as far forward as possible to allow more students to exit at once. Do not drive through (you may park) the parking lot to drop your students off. The fort MPs will be issuing citations to those not following directions. Please contact the school office with any questions.
Thank you for your help in keeping our students safe.
